    Mine was 1695, I gave myself a 2k budget for it and didn't have any issues finding dresses in that range. Alterations were more expensive than I thought though, the shop ordered one size too big so I had to have a lot taken in as well as a hem. Just picked it up yesterday for $650.

    My mom purchased my dress and gave me a budget of $1500. My dress was exactly that and included the veil and garter. Alterations will be about another $150 which to me isn’t bad.

    My mom gifted me my dress and my budget was around 2K. My dress came out to $1900 and alterations will be about $550. I bought it from Lotus Bridal in NYC. I will take care of the alterations cost so I am very grateful to my mom. I love my dress!

    I will admit I splurged a bit on my dress... My dress was $1,500 and veil was $350, both I got at a local bridal boutique.

    BUT my original plan was to get a pre-owned wedding dress off of preownedweddingdresses.com

    They had soooo many beautiful designer dresses for more than half the price! They had a variety of new/sample dresses and pre-owned, plus "pre-owned" basically means they wore it for 1 day.

    Dress: On sale for $740 from David's Bridal. (Originally around $950ish).

    I got slammed with alterations though because I have a weird shaped body that nothing fits right. My alt bill was $538. Yes, almost as much as I paid for the dress. Ridiculous.

    Original price $1,450 on my wedding dress at a bridal shop but I paid for design customizations so the total was $1,750 before taxes. Then I found my reception wedding dress at the same shop—it was discontinued at an amazing price of $99!

    I'm having a friend who owns a custom sewing business make mine. I think it will end up being under $400 or so.

    I got my dream dress off stillwhite.com for $900. It was brand new with no alterations and 50% less than the listing price of $1880.

    We were originally planning to stay around $1,500-$2,000, but I found my dream dress for an AMAZING deal! A bride was trying to get rid of it after buying two dresses from a boutique (it was brand new with no alterations). It's a mermaid style with a ton of beading and lace on the bodice, and the skirt is covered in ruffles. It would've been around $1,500 originally, but I only paid $225! She got it from a local boutique that was going out of business.
